Comments

Step 3: Capture and relocate voles by placing live traps in runways or near burrows. Voles seldom stray from their runways, so place the traps accordingly and check them daily.

---"relocate?" okay, to where? a blue state?

seriously, where do you relocate them to?

obviously they're vegetarians ...

Voles can be relocated to any undeveloped outdoor area where they are less likely to do damage, preferably a half mile or more away from neighboring homes and gardens.

Along with house mice, they make great catfish and bass bait. I'm just saying...

relocate these varmints to vole heaven. use the anticoagulant (decon, among others) sparingly...it works it's way into the food chain, kills birds.

relocate a half mile away? seems they're still out there.

I would think their feces are a common means for passing serious illnesses. seems better to kill them.
